Spreading Kindness Campaign
A grassroots citizen’s initiative to create a culture of kindness in Eugene and Springfield, Oregon.
One small act of kindness at a time.
Spreading Kindness encourages random and intentional acts of kindness throughout all aspects of our community, including personal, family, neighborhoods, schools, government, policing, businesses and organizations.
Choose Kindness: Wear a Mask
Wearing a mask is an act of kindness because doing so protects others more than it protects ourselves.
